ISO 27001

Your organisation almost certainly stores and handles information and data, even if it’s just phone numbers in a notebook. Once you create a record, you have an obligation to protect its security. Failure to do so leaves you vulnerable to breaches and even prosecution.

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (normally just known as ISO 27001) is the international standard for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) and helps you manage this challenge.

It’s not just about cyber security. It allows you to take control of the security of information in whatever form it’s held and however it’s transmitted – on paper, electronically, by post or email, shown on films or even spoken in conversation. Whatever form it takes, or means by which it is stored and shared, the standard helps to make sure it’s always appropriately protected to assist with the preservation of:

Confidentiality – ensuring that access to information is appropriately authorised

Integrity – safeguarding the accuracy and completeness of information and processing methods

Availability – ensuring authorised users have access to information when required

The Process
It's quick and easy to achieve your ISO certification and start winning new business.


Your dedicated Auditor will be in touch to go through the audit plan in preparation for your Stage 1 assessment.

Stage 1 assessment

There’s no pressure for the first assessment; many are surprised what they already have in place following this visit. The report issued will highlight the next steps you need to take to achieve your certification.

Stage 2 assessment

When you’re ready, your Auditor will visit again to establish if your management systems and processes meet the requirements of the standard. You’ll be advised of the Auditor’s recommendations on the day which will be ratified by our Compliance department, and your certification will be issued following the decision.

Annual assessment

The excellent reputation of ISO 9001 is driven by its requirement for ongoing improvement, so we’ll keep in touch and arrange annual assessments to keep your certification up-to-date.
